Crossing Vatnajökull

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Expedition across Vatnajökull left yesterday, Arnar Felix drove Atli and the team to Jökulheimar it was 7 hours of driving to the Glacier.

We left yesterday to Jökulheimar on our Land Rover, It was a 7 hour ride to the glacier. Snow has started to melt, not the best condition for snow driving but we made it. When we came to the glacier Tungná was open so we had to find a good route to the glacier and we found a good place to cross a little bit north of Jökulheimar. The team finished a 17km up the glacier yesterday and are on the way up to Grímsvötn today, whether forecast is good - it´s looking good.
